I only grow 1 hybrid which are Sungold Tomatoes.

The rest are heirlooms. I've started seed collecting several years back, like stamp collectors. I have varieties of corn that the grandparent plants were sprouted from seeds found in a Mayan Tomb. I have over 30 varieties of heirloom tomatoes alone. I have 1 side of my walk-in bedroom closet dedicated to seed storage and collecting. We've just relocated to the deep south so my heirloom Winter Luxury pumpkins are being attacked by the humidity. However Collidial Silver spray is working wonders. I plan to save those seeds over several generations to harden my heirloom which is the best variety for bread/muffin baking.

Interesting discussion and article.
We are growing more heirloom plants this year. Some seeds were given to us and some we bought. We bought organic seeds thinking we were safe. Oh well, we will keep trying. Time to take a look at the websites mentioned. Thank you.

Here's a good article on the subject from Food Renegade (one of my favs)

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I'm not much of a gardener, so I don't generally plant from seed, but buy Sweet 100s plants from a store. I never thought about whether or not they were grown from contaminated seed. Life just seems to get more & more complicated, doesn't it?

ty_secret_of_organic_seeds


"“The dirty secret of the organic seed industry is that seeds are getting contaminated (with genetically modified organisms or GMOs) and are getting sold to growers,” said Matthew Dillon, director of advocacy for the Organic Seed Alliance. In other words, farmers and gardeners may be unwittingly buying GMO-tainted seeds when they think they’re buying an organic, and thus non-GMO, product."
